Pastor’s Attempt to “Duplicate” Boko Haram In Osun State Flops, Culprits Arrested


The little town of Ikonifin in Ola
Oluwa Local government area of
Osun State was thrown into an
uproar when a church leader’s,
Pastor Olatoke’s, ploy to “duplicate”
Boko Haram in the vicinity was foiled
by some sprightly youths. The ploy
would have placed Muslims living in
Ikonifin in a very sore light if the
attempt by Pastor Olatoke was
The pastor of the Baptist church
Ikonifin, who is also the CAN
President of Ola Oluwa Local
Government, was reported to have
conspired with three members of his
church, Emmanuel Atanda, Pitter
Oyedepo and Ogunniyi Babatope to
dress like Boko Haram militants and
use turban to cover their faces.
When it was around 11-12pm on
Sunday, 18th May, 2014, during the
church services, the three men
stormed the church premises and
started throwing knockouts to scare
church members away.
Consequent upon this development,
the worshippers took to their heels,
running helter-skelter for their
precious lives. Many were injured in
the process. Fortunately, those men
were arrested when they were trying
to escape with their motorcycle by
some agile youths of the community.
During the ensuing severe torture
before the arrival of the police, the
fake “Boko Haramites” revealed that
they are members of the Baptist
Church and that it was a planned
deal with their pastor.
When the pastor was consulted he
said it was just a drama.
The Christian Association reportedly
did all possible best to bury the case
but it failed as the exploit eventually
leaked to the media.
Sheikh Daood Imran Molaasan, the
Founder and National President of
Jama’at Ta’awunil Muslimeen has
called on the state government to
bring the perpetrators of such
malicious crime to book.
“To bury such a case, is a crime
against Muslims because if the plan
was successful, Muslims would have
been in danger. It’s unjust until the
perpetrators are brought to book; and
CAN should be warned that any
conspiracy against Muslims or
attempt to destabilize the State of
Osun will be their end, In- Sha- Allah
” he warned.
Professor O.O Ladipo also called on
the state government to arrest the
pastor who intended to launch Boko
Haram in the State of Osun with the
aim of putting Muslims in danger.
